Taliban urges more 'revenge' on US over Anti-Islamic film

The murder of a US ambassador at the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was a "deliberate" and planned "revenge attack" according to Intelligence group Quilliam.

It said the attack was to avenge the killing of Abu al Libi, a veteran al Qaeda militant killed in a US drone strike earlier this year.
